At the heart of a Cardas cable is Our Ultra-Pure Cardas Copper.
Mined in the Southwest USA and processed in the Northeast, we employ proprietary drawing and annealing techniques to create the highest quality, purest copper strands. A Single Poly-Nylon coating is applied to prevent oxidation and eliminate crosstalk between strands
The basic building blocks of a Cardas cable have been constant since day one: Our own, Ultra-Pure Copper, produced using our proprietary method. Multi-stranded Litz conductors, with strand size varying in Golden Ratio steps. Top quality dielectric materials and innovative air-tube dielectric suspension techniques. Premium connectors machined from copper & brass, plated with silver, and a flash of rhodium. Terminations performed by skilled craftsmen, using Cardas Quad Eutectic Solder and Cardas Rosin Flux Soldering Paste. These design elements were present in the original Cardas cables, like Quadlink & Hexlink, and former flagships such as Golden Cross & Golden Reference.
Our Clear cable line combines all of this with Matched Propagation Technology, the subject of George’s most recent patent (US Patent 7,674,973), which matches the propagation rate of the conductor to that of the dielectric, eliminating time-smear distortion, improving musical integrity and dynamic range.
Completely neutral and transparent. Superb dynamics, high frequency extension and speed. Our flagship interconnect for reference level systems in acoustically neutral rooms.
Perfect control over the entire frequency range. Extracts every detail and remains musical. Works great long or short runs.
Terminations: Cardas SRCA or CG-XLR.
Conductors: Matched Propagation Kevlar core, ultra-fine Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions and range from 41 AWG to 39 AWG. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in ultra-thin extruded PTFE jacket.
Geometry: Equilateral triad 3 conductors with anti-static LDPE air-tubes bound with carbon impregnated PTFE tape wrap. Outer layer uses PTFE air-tubes scaled 1.618 times larger than the core tubes to suspend the composite shield of tinned copper and magnet wire away from the signal carrying conductors. Finished in an ultra-soft extruded TPR jacket.
